Matthew Weiner, the creator, writer, producer and occasional director of “Mad Men,” paid no heed to the old showbiz adage: “Never work with children or animals.” And it’s a good thing. Otherwise, television audiences would have missed out on the astonishing transformation of Sally Draper, the character played by the actress Kiernan Shipka, from an adorable girl of 6 with a few cameo scenes to one of the most compelling characters and acclaimed actors on the show.
- Kiernan was 6 when she auditioned twice for Sally
- Matthew cleared all Sally scenes with Kiernan's mom
- Reporter asks her about Sally's masturbation scene (?), Matt tells her she doesn't have to talk about that but she's fine with it. "I was very in the world of Sally when we shot that scene. I knew that her mother was really ashamed of what she’d done, and I played off that."
- Kiernan calls January Jones an 'amazing actress' (LOL) and 'great counterpart'
- Matt's most insecure moment on set was Don showing Sally and Bobby his childhood home
- Matt agrees that the show is all about Sally. Says the show is seen through the eyes of a child
- Kiernan wasn't allowed to attend table reads or watch the show. Recently caught up on Netflix. Hasn't sunk in that it's over.
- Kiernan: "The show made me fall in love with characters, flawed ones, that are real and have voices."

Ludacris performs an all-GoPro acoustic version of "What's Your Fantasy" while backstage in the Tonight Show music room.
How about a 00s Rap post
The Flesh actor's fans recently started a Twitter campaign for him and in an interview with Radio Times, he was in support of the idea.
"Of course! It would be incredible just to be considered for that role," he said. "It's a world that I'm familiar with and love – I love Harry Potter – so yes I'm very grateful to my fans for thinking of me, it's a great honour. Yes, yes, I'd love to!"
He previously had a small part as as Teddy Lupin in the epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, but his scene was ultimately cut.
Executive producer David Heyman recently confirmed that filming will begin in late summer.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be released on November 18, 2016.
WHO WILL BE NEWT, ONTD? And who should be the villain and why should it be James McAvoy?
Has madonna finally returned to making epic videos?
"The Runner-Up" is a four-part documentary about Clay's failed bid for Congress, airing on April 7th on Esquire network. It will follow the adventure that was the campaign, and highlight his politcal motivations, ambitions, and the obsticles he faced along the way. It is anticipated to be the highest rated program to air on cable this decade (by myself).
Things you can look forward to in this documentary:
- Clay Aiken swearing up a storm
- Speculation about if Clay is a murderer
- The political stylings of Clay Aiken
- Probably a little bit of singing by Clay Aiken
- Bill Maher being an idiot about Clay Aiken and everything
- A montage of terrible haircuts
Are you ready to take Clay seriously? Have you ever run a failed bid for congress?
The event will incorporate what writer Scott Lobdell refers to as "fan-fiction"; stories that occur outside of canon/continuity (often under the Elsewords imprint). Stories that will be used in Convergence include Kingdom Come, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, and Red Son. You can also expect to see references to previous company events including Crisis on Infinite Earths, Zero Hour, DC One Million, and Flashpoint.
Characters from different universes will be able to meet. For example, the Convergence: Booster Gold issue will feature both old and New 52 versions of the character. Legacy characters can co-exist with their predecessors, with Lobdell using the Flashes as an example.
Stories will not necessarily be reader-friendly for newer fans. Marc Andreyko, writing Batman and the Outsiders, says the story picks up from the old comics and assumes that the reader is already familiar with the characters and past storylines.
Perhaps the most burning question when it comes to Convergence is how it will affect the current New 52 continuity. Writer Jeff King wasn't able to give a definitive answer but said that "every character involved in Convergence will become available to DC’s storytellers – the ones that survive, at least." It is also possible that continuity will be more fluid in the future. Lobdell lamented that things had become so "grounded", which did not allow for flexibility in storytelling.
Who/what do you want to see in Convergence? All I care about is having Helena B. as the Huntress.
Has a different sound to it(it's not uptempto like I thought it would be).......can't really explain it. There are a lot of pauses in the song and it sounds like a farmer left his tractor on while they were recording.....but I oddly like it. The fans aren't happy about it though....The production is almost too innovative.....

It's a teaser so it's obviously not very long. I liked the first one though until the ending the mood in it was fantastic. Hoping this is decent!
On how they met and the drama:
Rechtshaid and Flowers bonded on the phone over Dire Straits and Depeche Mode, relinquishing control to each other in Flowers’ Battle Born studios and crafting an accessible yet sophisticated power rock record. It features a Bronski Beat-sampling electro smash (I Can Change), an E Street Band-inspired anthem (Lonely Town) and finally a rousing sister track to Killers classic Read My Mind called Between Me And You. But it wasn’t without its dramas. “I’m telling you it was tough,” says Brandon. “I wanted to fire him. Four times. He knows. I remember my wife was in the kitchen; I got a song from him on my phone. We played it and I said: ‘I can’t fire, him can I?’ She said, ‘No, you can’t. That’s too good.’”
On U2 and his band The Killers:
I ask Flowers about this notorious drive. Ariel tells me he’s a “prolific machine”. I suggest that similarly gargantuan bands haven’t seen their frontmen take such individual risks. Bono, for instance, has never made a solo record. “We all have different circumstances. U2 wanted to keep conquering,” Flowers says. “If my band wanted to conquer – ha! – I would be with them conquering. I wish this was a Killers record. It’s so strong. Every song on it is a single.”

"Still Want You" for Single Number Dos
While Island Records nor Brandon have yet to confirm the follow up to "Can't Deny My Love," there have been hints about "Still Want You" being the second single. Brandon confirmed the lyrics to Rolling Stone recently and says it's his favorite song at the moment.
Crime is on the rise, I still want you/Climate change is dead, I still want you/Nuclear distress, I still want you/Earth is heating up, I still want you/Hurricanes and floods, I still want you.
Frequent collaborator and director Warren Fu also confirmed on twitter about directing "Still Want You." He last worked with Brandon on the Killers video for "Just Another Girl."

Basically, the first review gives the first four episodes a B+ rating. The major gripe is that the sand snakes are too cheesy and aren't believable as warriors.
Also, that the Faith Militant don't seem like they belong on a show like this. They're hoping that Tommen dies this season because it would make things more interesting.
The story is more slow than before. But, they're still enjoying the show mostly for Cersei "whose mental state just keeps getting richer. With her father dead, she’s more ambitious than ever, and it’s fascinating to watch her evolution".
and now onto the detailed spoilers that are leaked from the first four eps.....

The news was broken at Wondercom today, confirmed by numerous attendees and sources close to Twin Peaks. The show's return was announced via Showtime in mid-October, with David Lynch directing all nine episodes, but as of a few weeks ago, David Lynch said that he had not officially signed on, that they were still working on the contract. Kyle MacLachlan was confirmed to return, along with Sheryl Lee and Dana Ashbrook, but David Lynch called the cast this afternoon to tell them that Showtime had officially pulled the plug.
Breaking news out of WonderCon: Showtime has apparently pulled the plug on the new Twin Peaks TV series. No word yet as to why.— Bill Hunt (@thedigitalbits) April 5, 2015
David contacted cast members today to inform them Showtime pulled the plug.— Twin Peaks Festival (@TwinPeaksFest) April 5, 2015
I am not really surprised but I am sort of bummed tbh, the cast seemed really excited about it.
EDIT, IT IS STILL ON, BUT DAVID IS NO LONGER DIRECTING IT [awful imo]
-Chris Wallace and Mike Gallagher have both apologized to Kelly Clarkson
-They both body-shamed her on Mike Gallagher's show on Friday
-Chris Wallace said that "she could stay off the deep dish pizza"
-They both apologized for their awful comments today
When were you last body-shamed?
Are you a Christian? Do you believe in God? Did you celebrate Easter today?
Season five of Shameless has certainly kept us on our toes, which is why there’s no telling what will go down in tonight’s season finale. From Fiona’s quickie wedding and Ian’s mental health struggle to so many Gallagher arrests that we’ve lost track, there hasn’t been a dull moment since the most dysfunctional family on Chicago’s South Side returned to Showtime in January.
But one of this season’s most intense storylines wasn’t about one of the Gallaghers. Sure, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) has had her fair share of drama, but it’s been the emotional-rollercoaster marriage of her best friends, Kev (Steve Howey) and Veronica (Shanola Hampton) that’s been the hardest to watch. “They’d never been at odds before, and they’d never had this awkward feeling of not knowing where they are with one another,” Hampton told InStyle during a recent visit to our office. “It’s really this crazy dynamic.”

Yay! Actual emotional stakes for Diane.
Also, this show needs to stop trying to get us to care about Alicia's campaign. You already did the "rigged election" bit with Peter, henny.

From the always "reliable" Radaronline:
-Allegedly popping Adderall to keep her weight down & mixing it with booze
-Family is afraid and thinks she should be in rehab
-They tried to stage an intervention with Jessica and Ashlee getting into it. Very dramatic
-She's been a trainwreck at recent events and interviews (dat Extra interview)
- He stopped filming the daytime soap two weeks ago.
- Serial Scoop reached out to NBC for a comment but the network and Days of Our lives have yet to comment on Smith's departure.
- Days of our Lives has been filming episodes five months in advance so Smith will air as Sonny through most of the summer.
- No word yet whether the character of Sonny will be recast. This begs the question, is this the end of Will and Sonny's crumbling marriage? What about Sonny and Paul?
Nooooooooooooooooo!! Sonny was my favorite! I really wanted him and Paul to get together. :(
Tyler Oakley will be on next week's epsiode. Will you be watching ONTD?
I need people to reassure me that Noel Fisher is not leaving and Gallavich is endgame!
A few days ago some people on ONTD mentioned that it seemed like Giuliana was on a PR pity party about to promote something and it turns out they were right. Giuliana has a book coming out on Tuesday. Obviously this isn't something that just snuck up overnight so it isn't like we called something before it was really revealed (she just wasn't on anyone's radar) but suddenly all the press about her makes much more sense. According to the NY Daily News, tomorrow she is even appearing on Today where she has supposedly been given the okay by E! to address the Zendaya controversy a month and a half after the fact which isn't suspicious or self-serving sounding at all.
Continuing the trend in all the press related to her this week being geared at making us feel bad for her the part of her book that people have decided to run with to promote it is the fact that Jerry O'Connell cheated on her not once but two times in the year that they dated. According to Giuliana when she approached him about messing around with Spice Girl Geri Halliwell "He [had] as much emotion as the customer-service representative who tells you your bags missed the flight." For some reason she forgave him anyway only to find him flirting with Rebecca Romijn at a Maxim party not long after. He then stopped taking her calls so she tried to approach him in person and she claims he ended it by saying "Sorry, homegirl, things change, but you take care, OK?"
As you all probably know O'Connell and Romijn ended up getting married a few years later.
Anyway tune in tomorrow morning and watch her simultaneously apologize and self-promote.

Q: Tell me about your character, the Countess Marburg.
Answer: I’m playing one of the last of the original witches. She’s thousands of years old and has had many incarnations. She often died horrible deaths. She’s a real survivor. She now has stumbled across Salem, and Mary Sibley, who is the most fascinating person the countess has met in hundreds of years. She becomes fixated on Mary, which means inevitably that I must consume her. But Mary’s not going to go easily.
Q: You’ve played a lot of powerful and often startling women. Are you tough off-screen?
Answer: It took me years, decades, to learn to be soft. I was raised (in New Zealand) with a lot of brothers. I didn’t know I was a girl until I was about 8. But if that’s my lot in life, I’m not one to grumble. It’s been pretty good.
Q: Did you plan a career where you would play such groundbreaking roles?
Answer: I float through life with no plans at all. I am in awe of those actors who are always doing stuff to promote themselves with videos and a website. That ain’t me. I just kind of float on. But I have to say in retrospect, I don’t think I could have been any luckier.

What did everyone think of 2.01? Favourite characters? Predictions?
Apparently people are interested in trying scything following the iconic Official Poldark Post Photo™ and then the clip of Aidan scything a field with his shirt off (gifs below).
"People don't realise what an art it is," says Simon Damant, the joint national scything champion.
Richard Brown, chairman of the Scythe Association of Britain and Ireland, says, "I've certainly seen a lot more about scything on the internet since that episode, but it's too early to tell if more people will want to try it".
Actual quote from the BBC article: "The actor set hearts racing as he scythed his way through a field, muscles rippling and glistening with sweat, as his dark unruly curls blew in the breeze."
- scything source -
Also, The Telegraph wonders whether Aidan has groomed his manly chest rug to show the muscles he gained through many hours in the gym. Aidan has admitted to having some form of baby oil applied to his hot body and a little eyeliner, but says no mascara on his pretty lashes.

Hope the images worked this time, mods.
